Prepare for your visit
Having to have a diagnostic test may be stressful for you and your child. However, knowing what to expect can help put you and your child at ease.
Computed tomography (CT)
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
MRI is a diagnostic procedure that uses a large magnet, radio waves and a computer to produce detailed images of organs and body structures. Unlike X-rays and CT scans, MRI does not use radiation.
An ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves and a computer to create images of soft body structures, such as tissues, organs and blood vessels.
X-ray is the process of creating images of the body using radiation to look at images of internal tissues, organs and bones. Doctors use a special type of x-ray, the EOS low-dose radiation scanner, to help treat children with scoliosis (a curved spine). Now, families travel across the country for this cutting-edge care.
